My princess has flu; I took her this morning to the Dr. as she had fever 102.8 °F. Yesterday twice when I gave her medication it will reduce the fever but then it comes back after a few hours. Doctor prescribed Tamiflu and not to send to school until next Monday. Also I am due to post for easy mother’s day dessert recipe, and for that I tried cream cheesecake with mango cardamom Coulis with Sara Lee’s original cream Classic Cheesecake and Cool whip topping This post is mainly assembly with only making mango cardamom Coulis.
My mom was the greatest friend I ever had; I couldn’t find any other friends like her. With her I could share even the smallest details of happening s in my everyday life. She was not a strict person. When I get upset I will tell her why you had me. She will tell me I don’t want answer anything, you will find it when you had kids. Now I realize the meaning after having two kids. Not a single day leaves without remembering her. Whether it is food she made or ritual she followed. For me every day is mother’s day.
Even though she had diabetics, she loved sweets. Mango was her favorite fruit. So when I got a chance to make mother’s day inspired recipe. I decide to make this mango cardamom Coulis. Nowadays I can get fresh mango as it is available in the market. Mango and cardamom make a good combination; yes they are perfect partners, especially in desserts. It is hard to think without cardamom in an Indian dessert.
I didn’t make any cream cheesecake; this cream cheesecake is from Sara Lee’s original cream Classic Cheesecake with sour cream topping. Trust me it is so delicious, my crazy cheesecake fan my hubby told me. I too agree with him. Sara Lee frozen desserts and Cool Whip deliver a winning recipe for bringing loved ones to the table. It is always nice to keep Sara Lee dessert and Cool Whip Whipped Topping in your freezer is the perfect way to be prepared for easy entertaining or snacking at any time. You can grab both Sara Lee cheesecake and Cool whip topping products from the frozen dessert section in your local Kroger store.
Coulis is a smooth, thin sauce usually made from fruit but also from vegetables. The sauce consists of a pureé of the main ingredient which is sieved and then served as it is or flavored with icing sugar or alcohol in the case of sweet coulis or with the addition of seasoning or herbs to savory versions. It is usually served as an accompaniment to dishes rather than as part of the main dish.
I made mango cardamom coulis using fresh mango and pureed with aromatic cardamom and sugar. Since mango has high amount of pectin we don’t need to add any thickener. My coulis is really simple recipe and only need 3 ingredients.
Once you have prepared mango cardamom coulis, pour them over the cheese cake and I piped the cool whip to give some nice feel. Then arranged with mango rose, you can arrange it with cubed mango also. I like the fact that Sara Lee frozen desserts are made with real, quality ingredients and the easy addition of Cool Whip Whipped Topping quickly elevates your dessert to something more special.
Here comes the recipe.
